Goodbye Car!As an Environmental Science major in school, I always have been somewhat aware of the impact I am making on the Earth. Living in a major city, it has been easier to be "green". With composting, recycling, second-hand stores, etc being "green" has become second nature.
Well, this past weekend, I decided to take it one step further... I sold my car! Ah! I still cannot believe I am car-less. I have had "Elizabeth" since I was 16. It was extremely hard to part with her, but I know that living in a big city, a car is not a necessity. It killed me every night, as I would circle around the block over and over trying to find parking, thinking about all the emissions being released into the air.
Guess I am a bus/train/metro rider now! Good thing I live within walking distance of work.
Best of luck to anyone else who has recently said goodbye to their car.
